3 thoughts on “Concentration Camps Through the Ages – A Bad Idea

  1. It’s important to remember that Germany wasn’t the only country to create internment or concentration camps. Even countries we would consider allies like America or Britain were guilty of it.

  2. So normally, when we think of concentration camps, we think of the Nazis, or maybe one other similar large camp system, like the internment camps (I am often reminded of Native American/Indian reservations). This makes me think that concentration camps were more prevalent than I thought, and some are overshadowed by others. It also depends on what you think of as a “concentration camp” – you could argue that POW camps are concentration camps.

  3. This is a very interesting depiction of how the different camps through the ages are related. It shows how the American containment of Japan was right alongside some of the famous dictators of the 19th and 20th century. Sometimes I, and many other people focus are attention on the Concentration camps in Germany but fail to realize that many other countries also set up similar camps. Overall, a very well done diagram.
